‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ Wins Sundance

Beasts of the Southern Wild, an apocalyptic film starring an 8-year-old girl, won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah Saturday night. The film was directed and co-written by 29-year-old first-time filmmaker Benh Zeitlin, who shot the film on location in Louisiana. The House I Live In, a documentary about the war on drugs, won the top honor in its category.
